To all my juggler moms…

I’m writing this time because I KNOW I’m not the only one.  And maybe, someone out there is going to read this one and think “Thank GOD I am not alone”. When you ask someone to define what they are, what do they say?  The first thing?  If you haven’t had kids yet, I bet…

The man flu

We’ve been plagued with sickness in our house. Since around the beginning of December it’s been one after another. First, Ricklan caught the flu, which we discovered when we went to a friends birthday party and she vomited all over me. That was a long night. My heart broke for my baby as she tried…

2017, I’m ready for you.

I’m not sure how to begin this one, or even what exactly I want to say. There is so much I feel like pouring out and I’m not sure how to organize the thoughts into something comprehensive or even make sure they all connect. I’ll just start at the beginning and hope it comes around….

Dear EVERY mom…I’m not judging

I’ve been at this mom thing for just a few short months. I’ve read a lot of articles on the Internet and heard more input than I really care to. My sisters have been at the job a lot longer. One taking it slow and steady with 4 kids under 12. The other going fast…

The View From The Other Side…

There were many posts that I created during my pregnancy.  Many I felt I should really share and put out there.  Things I felt that I thought others might relate to and that I don’t see out there too often.  I was just a little nervous knowing how quickly my moods changed, knowing my hormones…

Pregnancy Post 2

I was so discouraged today.  I have been telling people and telling myself that I’m halfway there!  Four and a half months I say! Halfway!  But today I did the math….four and a half months is what I was calling 18 weeks…yet a pregnancy is 40…which means…I have two more weeks to go before I…
